mizuno wave harrier... best I have ever run in off road (in particular in mud/water). Forget ankle support - get off road and build up your own ankle support.
agree with the above, if you have a little more to spend, perhaps look at inov8 or salomon shoes,
word of warning if you want kanadia's from adidas, try some on, i'm an 11 in most shoes, (11.5 running shoes) and most brands are within a half size, when i tried kanadias on i only JUST fit insode a 12.5 and with thicker socks they would have been uncomfortably small. they are notoriously small.
+1 for Adizero's I use them off road and for races that are both off and road surface combined and they work great.
Got mine from pro direct sport
I like my asics fujies. Comfortable, responsive, grippy. Apart from the crazy red and orange colour scheme.
+1 on the Asics Fuji, plenty of grip and comfy to wear.
I have a pair of Kanadias and a pair of More Mile Cheviots.
The Cheviots can be had for £25 and size up as normal. The Kanadias do size up a bit small.
The Cheviots feel heavier-duty than the Kanadias. But I haven't used either in anger yet so can't comment further.
If your looking for good ankle support in an off-road shoe Martynn you shouldn`t of bought those Kanadias, they sit high of the ground, have a high heel/toe differential and the soles are quite stiff so your ankles will be taking all the abuse if your ever running over rough/bumpy ground...
